IP : Intellectual Property or Internet Protocol?

Here is more on An Amazing Coincidence. About.com gave me some boilerplate text to use in an email complaint. It appears to have worked. After sending a copy of the message to the site's domain contact, I received the reply, 'It was submitted by one of our members. I'll unpublish these articels, and will then look into it. Thanks for letting me know.'

The URL now returns the message 'You are not authorized to view this resource. You need to login.' I'll check that another time.

Changing my mind about OMOV ??
